Do you know the Magnetic light that is very popular recently

LED magnetic lighting is a kind of lighting fixture that connects led lighting components to the track using an energized magnetic track. LED magnetic lights now mainly have Fold Magnetic Grille Spotlights, Spotlight With Framing, Magnetic Grid Spotlights, Magnetic Linear Floodlights, Magnetic Track Spotlights, and Magnetic pendant lights.

The led magnetic suction track light is more convenient than traditional track light in installing and dismantling the light and is easy for daily maintenance and repair. And magnetic track light system can flexibly match it with different models and numbers of track lights according to various requirements. If the drive power allows, the designer can use magnetic track lighting according to the design of any splicing to the track.

A magnetic track can support different styles of led magnetic track lights so that magnetic track lighting can use in a wider range of scenes and designs. And installed on the track, the lamps can easily slide to any track position without additional tools. You can DIY unlimited splicing methods according to different use scenarios and design solutions.

Led magnetic track light is currently the most popular home lighting, where the intelligent dimmable led magnetic track light system is now a popular trend in the market.

Introducing The First Magnetic Light by FLOS

Introducing The First Magnetic Light by FLOS

The rise of magnetic lights took only 5 years. In 2016, the international lighting giant FLOS launched the first magnetic light, which stunned the entire industry and was quickly adopted by everyone. The biggest advantage of the magnetic light is that it installs in an instant and removes in an instant. To be honest, it’s really not that mysterious, nor is it much “high-tech.” The basic technology behind magnetic  lights hasn’t changed much since traditional track lighting was invented. However, magnetic features are added to the track lighting. Various light sources are designed for different lighting effects. Don’t underestimate these small changes; they are what make the design easier than ever. Typical “Small design changes an industry”

Magnetic lights for interior design

After the invention of magnetic light, lighting designs became instantly smaller. Anyone who knows a little bit knows that interior design has a subdivision of “lighting designer”. Lighting is a professional field. Many interior designers do not understand lighting and need specialized personnel. Designers want to create a space without main lights. If traditional light sources are used, they must first carefully plan the overall and local lines and select appropriate light sources. Otherwise, various low-level mistakes may be made, resulting in insufficient brightness and unsightly lighting effects. Glare, etc. Moreover, once the design is not good, it is difficult to dismantle and modify. In contrast, the magnetic  light only needs to install the track, you can add or remove the light source and move the light at will, and the installation is very simple. In many interior design schemes, designers only design tracks; owners then move them in according to their own needs before adding light sources by paving or buying more as needed. For beginners in decoration, it is also very easy to operate by paving tracks first before adding light sources one by one until they have enough; they can then change them at will with no problems at all. Magnetic lights have many advantages. It’s a good choice for ordinary families to enter it.

So what are the advantages of magnetic lights?

So what are the advantages of magnetic lights

In addition to beautiful appearance, magnetic lights also include:

1. Installation is simple.

You only need to lay the track in advance, suck up the lights, take them down, and get it done in a second.

Installation is simple

2.Can be equipped with different lights

The magnetic light adopts a modular concept, and there are many light source modules that can be applied to the magnetic light, including downlights, spotlights, grid lights, floodlights, chandeliers, and so on. The light source can be freely selected to meet the lighting needs of different spaces.

3.The number of lights can be increased or decreased freely

There is no limit to the number of lights installed on the track (theoretically). If more light is needed in a certain space, simply add more lights; if too much light is being used—for example in a hallway—remove some lights from the track using magnetic attraction to decrease brightness.

4.Free movement and angle adjustment.

Magnetic track lights allow the light source to move freely within the track, and they can be arranged in any way you like. Many magnetic light sources come with a wide range of adjustments, including magnetic spotlights, magnetic grid boxes, etc., allowing you to create a lighting design that fits your space perfectly. 5. Low voltage safety, no danger of touching.

5.Low voltage safety, no danger of touching.

Magnetic track lights on the market generally use 24V or 48V low-voltage design. Even if the track is always electrified, it is not dangerous for people to directly touch and install the lights.

6.Easy maintenance.

If the light is broken, it can be directly removed for maintenance, which is not as troublesome as traditional light sources

7.It can also be used as a main light without a ceiling.

Many home decorations are done before they want to make a main light, but in the end they give up because the ceiling is too troublesome. The magnetic  light is all on the track, and there is no need to open holes and hide wires in many places. Using surface-mounted track, the design of main lights can be realized without a ceiling.

Are there any disadvantages to the magnetic light?

Are there any disadvantages to the magnetic light

1.Compared with ordinary track lights, magnetic lights are more expensive.

Taking a living room of 20-30 square meters as an example, using ordinary track lights and traditional light sources, the cost is about 300-600$, and the market cost of magntic lights is generally400-8000$. Of course, due to the modular design of the magnetic  light, the light can be allocated according to the needs, and it is relatively easy to control the budget.

2.The magnetic track is a relatively new lighting product, and engineers and electricians may not have experience in installing similar products.

There may be installation errors, and the early communication costs are relatively high.

In general, magnetic lights have many advantages over traditional light sources and are quite friendly to small decorations. Even if you do not have professional knowledge and design ability, you can easily do it. Magnetic lights are a good choice for families who want to change the main light after renovation.

Accessories for Magnetic Light: track, transformers, and lighting chips.

What to pay attention to when buying LED magnetic lights?

What to pay attention to when buying LED magnetic lights

When you buy a magnetic lamp, there are three accessories you should pay attention to, because they often determine how good the lamp is.

1. Lighting chips

The light chips is installed by magnetic attraction, which is very simple. But the other two accessories will take a bit of work.

2. Track

There are three types of common magnetic lights: embedded track, surface mounted track and hanging wire magnetic light track. Which track you choose depends on personal taste and other factors. The ceiling should also be considered. If you choose this kind of track you need to make a plan before the ceiling is suspended as it needs to have grooves installed and sealing plates painted on it before being suspended. Like other pre-embedded tracks it is necessary to do this rather cumbersome task before suspending the ceiling.

Surface-mounted track and ceiling-mounted track are available with or without ceiling. When there is no suspended ceiling, the cable must be slotted on the ceiling and operated by a professional electrician. In addition, the position of the surface-mounted track is affected by the location of the power cord, and the degree of design freedom is not so high (there are also surface-mounted tracks that can run the line inside the light, which improves the degree of design freedom to a certain extent). Communicate whether installation conditions are met. The width of track should be paid attention to; it has a greater impact on appearance. Ordinary magnetic tracks are 40mm wide; real objects appear thicker and more suitable for commercial space or office space. Families with low floors (especially) are recommended to buy 25mm mini tracks; they look less oppressive and more beautiful than ordinary ones.

3. Transformer

Transformer

When using a low-voltage track, it is necessary to use a transformer. Transformers are an essential component that many people tend to ignore. After all, the main selling point of the main light is the simplicity of design, how to hide the transformer is a problem. Transformers come in two types: one is the traditional embedded transformer, which is relatively large, such as 10cm×12cm, 10cm×20cm, and other dimensions. Generally, it should be hidden in the ceiling, air conditioning maintenance port, curtain box, and other places. Before installing the magnetic light, you must first want to know where to hide the transformer.

Although most transformers are 40 cm wide, they can only be used on thick tracks (houses usually use 25 mm tracks, so for them, this is not a problem). Moreover, different numbers of tracks may have different widths, so perfectionists should be clear about what size matches their needs before buying or will find it very confusing.

Surface-mounted track and ceiling-mounted track are available with or without a ceiling. When there is no suspended ceiling, the cable must be slotted on the ceiling and operated by a professional electrician. In addition, the position of the surface-mounted track is affected by the location of the power cord, and the degree of design freedom is not so high (there are also surface-mounted tracks that can run the line inside the light, which improves the degree of design freedom to a certain extent). Communicate whether installation conditions are met. The width of track should be paid attention to; it has a greater impact on appearance. Ordinary magnetic tracks are 40mm wide; real objects appear thicker and more suitable for commercial space or office space. Families with low floors (especially) are recommended to buy 25mm mini tracks; they look less oppressive and more beautiful than ordinary ones.
